2018 Voting Results and This Year’s Election

 

Although it’s been 45 years since Americans living overseas won the right to vote, in FVAP’s 2018 Overseas Citizen Population Analysis Report, of the estimated 2.9 million US Citizens abroad who were eligible to vote, only 135,507 ballots were received.  Recent media article indicates that more overseas voters will vote in the 2020 elections.

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to the 2018 Overseas Citizen Population Analysis Report, a total of 289,838 overseas citizens requested official voting ballots from their local election officials. “This represents an overall absentee ballot request rate of 10% among OCVAP across the 186 countries of which population estimates were available.” With 135,507 votes casted, that is a voting rate of 4.7% globally.  A recent USA Today article indicates that more overseas voters will vote in the upcoming elections.

ACA encourages every American living abroad who is eligible to vote to have their vote count and be heard. Imagine if every eligible American living abroad casted their votes and the impact it would have.
